lights of the Opera House. It's surprising that there aren't more people about
but, hey, what do you expect in a cheap demo game...?

Foyer of the Opera House
You are standing in a spacious hall, splendidly decorated in red and gold, with
glittering chandeliers overhead. The entrance from the street is to the north,
and there are doorways south and west.

>GO NORTH
You've only just arrived, and besides, the weather outside seems to be getting
worse.

>GO SOUTH

Darkness
It is pitch dark, and you can't see a thing.

>EXAMINE ME
In the dark? You could easily disturb something!

Cloakroom
The walls of this small room were clearly once lined with hooks, though now only
one remains. The exit is a door to the east.

>EXAMINE THE HOOK
It's just a small brass hook, screwed to the wall.

>EXAMINE ME
As good-looking as ever.

>INVENTORY
You are carrying:
  a velvet cloak (being worn)

>TAKE OFF THE CLOAK
You take off the velvet cloak.

>EXAMINE IT
A handsome cloak, of velvet trimmed with satin, and slightly spattered with
raindrops. Its blackness is so deep that it almost seems to suck light from the
room.

>HANG IT ON THE HOOK
You put the velvet cloak on the small brass hook.

[Your score has just gone up by one point.]

Foyer bar
The bar, much rougher than you'd have guessed after the opulence of the foyer to
the north, is completely empty. There seems to be some sort of message scrawled
in the sawdust on the floor.

>READ THE MESSAGE
The message, neatly marked in the sawdust, reads...
